Can you load that miata in the bed of the truck since it won't go any further on the trailer?

Any chance I'd be better off running skinny r-comps to get heat-up in the 45-50* air temps rather than the big 9's? I'm bringing street rubber too in case its too cold for r-comps.

Would be alot cheaper if I could but Uhaul trailers are set up for the car to be all the way forward for the tongue weight to be just right, and for the tire straps to work properly, does look kinda funky tho.

Air temperature is one thing, but the track surface temperature is completely different. There are going to be a lot of cars going very fast around this go-cart track, and the surface is going to heat up.

Better just bring all your tires.

Pics uploading now. 190 of just Miatas, and over 400 others. This is gonna take awhile. I'll be starting a thread in the media section.

50 degrees doesn't mean anything if the wind is blowing 30mph.

I had lots of fun and it was nice to meet everyone. My only times came from the last session where it was colder than before.

I finally got the feel of competion in that session though, and if I can learn to focus on keeping things tidy rather than over-driving, I'll do much better. I don't know how the hell that guy ran a 1:47...I have a lot to learn. Spoolin2bars was very impressive in his TT rungroup, he effectively cleaned house.

See you gays in Cresson.


Oh and my car was driven extremely hard and never missed on the go-fast or suspension parts. The brakes are absolute dog-**** and they're coming out this week and I'm putting the Wilwoods on. I wanted to save a little money and burn up old pads but its evident that I'm afraid of the car due to the random long-pedal crap.

but why are the brakes failing? Pads or heat dissipation?

what type of fluid where you running? What type pad? Rubber or steel lines?

I would do that before I went to larger brakes.

Next time you should park closer to everyone instead of keeping to yourself
